Conan's new Tonight Show set sure is nice, but the guys at Serious Lunch noticed that his new monologue backdrop looks pretty familiar. As in Mushroom Kingdom familiar.
Chen and I are in disagreement as to whether or not this is intentional. I say it's a coincidence, but he's convinced that Mario was a definite inspiration for this background. What do you guys think?
Totally worthy of an ONTD post only because it's ConeBone.
eta: the gif!
I love this nerd :]
eta 2: Tonight Show writer mentioned this on Twitter & said they might talk about it tonight!
@BigBley Ha ha ha - thanks for the Super Mario tip, friends - b/c of you, we might do it as a bit on the show tonight! I'll keep you posted! ;)
